Asian Women in Management, cracking the glass ceiling ?

Year 2007
Collection Cahiers de recherche; 2007.12
Abstract Research on the corporate Asian woman has been limited as most studies on women in management have focused within the Anglo-Saxon and European contexts. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to present a general overview of Asian female managers and compare it to their western counterparts. Similar individual, organizational and institutional career barriers have been found in the Asian context. However, the institutional perspective seems to play a larger role in the representation of Asian female managers. Through the cases of South Korea and China, we illustrate the impact of socio-cultural context on women's career.
